it makes in sense to cut those programs when you have the need. it stimulates the economy. when people get food stamps they go out and buy things. that helps the economy and creates jobs. it makes no sense. >> what was interesting you and your colleagues for the most part in terms of the democratic party said this went way too far. the republicans said it didn't go far enough. with that big of a divide did we expect dmanything to get throug? >> it's going to be tough. i know you talked about the immigration reform. i think there's an effort on the part of the republican leadership to try to pass an immigration reform bill. they are putting so many roadblocks in the way. in the house you may have read that they voted on an amendment. this was like a tea party right wing amendment that makes being in the united states a crime. another amendment that gets rid of the dreamers act that lets young people stay here and not be deported. then the speaker is saying he won't let the bill go to the floor unless it has a majority of the republicans which would include the tea party. we've got a long wa
